a statement on the debt ceiling. >> because the debt ceiling is the fight coming up next, as you know, brian, and everything the president would like to do at the start of that second term including new gun laws, immigration reform, energy. all those things will really be locked into place unless he can get some agreement on the debt, the president said he won't negotiate with congress about the debt ceiling, but we could be headed to another standoff, another kind of fiscal cliff similar to what we saw last summer unless that can be resolved. the president wants to get ahead of that, really put the responsibility on republicans in congress and make it clear he just doesn't want to budge. >> keep in mind the president will walk behind you any moment. there is a very thin line between leverage coming off an election and lame duck status, and the president has a robust agenda for this term number 2. >> it is, and the first year of second terms are the ones you have a shot as sitting president to have the most productive parts. but i want to go back and emphasize something david said, and that

-cannon. it is shaping up to be a busy week in washington. confirmation, gun control, the debt ceiling and an inauguration to plan all on the agenda this week. let's bring in tracie potts this morning live on capitol hill. we hit that debt ceiling and now it's about the debt limit. >> we hit it in technically in december but in order to keep paying the bills the government delayed some payments so it looks like we'll hit that ceiling or that limit again in mid february. congress has got to do something about that. the house is back today. republicans are going to push for spending cuts. remember their mantra has been no more borrowing without limiting what we're spending and among spending cuts they are likely to look at social security this time. >> there's also some trouble on capitol hill ahead of chuck hagel's confirmation hearing. >> the confirmation hearings we have coming up at least three of them. chuck hagel could be the most difficult because democrats and republicans here have some challenges and lots of questions for him. still they say about the stance on iran and things h

government workers' retirement funds to avoid hitting the debt ceiling. treasury said the move would give it $156 billion in additional spending capacity and insist that retirees will receive benefits. in a letter to john boehner, treasury secretary tim geithner said the step has been taken before during previous impasses over the debt limit. several republican lawmakers are set to direct treasury to prioritize which bills to pay if congress doesn't raise the debt ceiling. let's get you a check on the markets. futures are lower as we get big earnings this morning from jp morgan and goldman sachs. we have jpmorgan lower whereas goldman sachs is higher. stocks advanced yesterday with the dow extending the winning streak to five days and the s&p 500 hitting a five-year high. we get data out on consumer prices, industrial production and housing. watch out for that. back to you. >> seema, thank you very much. it's 5:17. as you know, facebook yesterday announced the new search. we'll look at what it can do in a bit. >> we look forward to that, thanks. >> 5:17 now. christina loren is back to tel

. >> you bet. >> there's a lot of work ahead as well. where is the talk about the debt ceiling, and the second term options for president obama, or is there no talk about that today? >> today, not so much. but the whole weekend we've been hearing talk about this. congress has decided to ease up a bit, give a three-month extension so we can lift that debt ceiling for the next three months. that will back us into, by the way, the whole idea of sequestration and dealing with the debt crisis on a more firm note in about three months. so they're giving the president, they're giving everyone a little bit of time right now to work it through. i'm sure the president is grateful for that. but for right now, vice president biden, of course, has just taken his oath of office which is very important not only because it's nice to know the vice president's all lined up. but remember, joe biden becomes a very important person to look at over the next four years because there's talk of him running for the presidency four years from now. a lot of that will depend on what hillary clinton does. s

this looming fight over the debt ceiling. our chief white house correspondent, chuck todd, was part of the questioning. he joins us from there tonight. chuck, good evening. >> reporter: good evening, brian. as you mentioned, vice president biden formally gave the president the gun violence task force recommendation that he was charged with getting. and while the president said he's formally going to unveil what his proposals are going to be, he did say today that if congress doesn't act at this news conference, he's willing to do it himself. during the hour-long press conference, president obama said he wants stronger background checks and limits on assault weapons and ammunition. but acknowledged the difficult politics. >> those are things i continue to believe make sense. will all of them get through this congress? i don't know. >> reporter: and he said administrative action, such as backtracking guns used by criminals are things he may be able to do right away. >> i'm confident that there are some steps we can take that don't require legislation. >> reporter: but gun control was
